NPM–And afterwards, the villain wrote a villanelle!

Upon Discovering that the Only Thing in a Briefcase I Stole
Was a Bunch of Damn Poems
 
for robert phillips
 
What really pisses me off more than anything
(I mean, after the scraped and bloody hands)
is that some of these poems are rather interesting.

Most times I bring home CDs or something
I can sell easily, (like textbooks, nothing too grand).
What really pisses me off more than anything

is the absolute worthlessness of these stupid things,
no reward for a crime so perfectly planned,
though some of these poems are rather interesting.

It was late one afternoon, not a single
person walking in the lot, a literal no man’s land.
What really pisses me off more than anything

is not the broken glass tinkling
onto the ground, but the money I should have in my hand.
Though some of these poems are rather interesting

I can’t get a dime for their rambling,
(or the poet I’m sure), but damn
what really pisses me off more than anything
is that some of these poems are rather interesting.
